We were brave enough to have Thanksgiving at our new home this year. It went exceptionally well and I loved having so much family in my house all at once.
I think everyone enjoyed it. At least I hope they did. Here is my mom and my great-aunt Mary Alice working hard in the kitchen. And seated at the table are both of my grandmothers. I couldn't ask for more! I love being with my family.
And here is a rare glimps of one of the twins touching my Uncle Roger. For some reason they are super shy when he comes around. Now Clara Paige on the other hand loves him to death, as you can see. It was a great day. Thanks everyone for making it so great!
Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is.
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” I Corinthians 2:9
How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.
Parents rejoice when their children turn out well; wise children become proud parents. So make your father happy! Make your mother proud! Proverbs 23

Hi! I hope you enjoy the adventures of my fascinating family of 5! My loving and amusing husband Alex is my best friend. I have 3 beautiful girlies! Sweet Clara Paige is our oldest who is 8. Maggie and Gracie are our adorable twins who are both 7 going on 17. It's no wonder I've nicknamed our family the Hicks Circus. Add our Dog Kelsey and we certainly have a 3 ring circus on our hands and I wouldn't have it any other way!
